My name is Rachel Tweddle. I’m originally from Wensleydale but have lived and worked in Teesdale for 15 years. I’m a qualified secondary teacher and taught at Staindrop Academy for 12 years until 2013 when I swapped over to Community Work basing myself at the TCR Hub in Barnard Castle. I am now the CEO of the charity.
I have experience in formal and informal education and the management of both an organisation and a large property. I enjoy working with the community and value the strength of a rural community in particular. I recently completed a Masters in Managing Community Practice at Durham University and enjoyed developing my skills professionally and personally.
I have a daughter was taught at Montalbo and is now at secondary school. I have a 2 year old son who I hope will attend Montalbo too one day.
